Report by Staff Reporter

Muparutsa, who was 45, succumbed to cancer.

Proceedings on Saturday started with a funeral service and speeches at the family home in Belvedere in the morning ending with burial at Glen Forest Cemetery in the afternoon. Taka, as Muparutsa was known in media circles, was laid to rest right next to his father and namesake, renowned actor Walter Muparutsa, who died in April this year.

Family members, while reminiscing fond memories of Cledwyn, as he was called among his relatives, as a valuable and valued member of the Muparutsa clan, said they were finding it difficult to come to terms with the fact that he had died barely six months after the passing-on of his father.

There was the reassuring and calming presence of Chief Muparutsa, a woman, mourning with the clan.

Present from Alpha Media Holdings, the publishers of NewsDay, were Group Human Resources Manager Loud Ramakgapola, Magazines Editor Davison Maruziva, NewsDay Editor Constantine Chimakure and Assistant Editor Conway Tutani.

Also present were Assistant Editor Wisdom Mdzungairi, Chief Sub Editor Kamurai Mudzingwa, News Editor John Nyashanu, Features Editor Ropafadzo Mapimhidze and Sales and Marketing Manager Punish Murumbi, among many others who came to pay their last respects to a much valued colleague.

Muparutsa is survived by his wife Tsitsi and six children.

May his soul rest in peace.
